When attorneys handle business formations, they put themselves at risk for violating professional conduct rules. There are a myriad of laws in place to prevent things like terrorism, tax evasion, and money laundering. But, what attorney’s don’t know can hurt them – resulting in fines and the possibility of losing their license.
In this on-demand webinar, CT’s expert staff will review the laws governing agencies should watch for, and the conflicts that can arise between ethics guidelines and statutory formation requirements. Attendees will learn the laws that impose penalties for doing business with certain risk groups, and how current and pending legislation can impact attorney-client privilege.
You’ll come away with an understanding of client due diligence methods to prevent ethical dilemmas, and our expert will expand on the ABA's Gatekeeper initiative that offers risk-based guidance. Tune in to find out more.
